Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
The SWL Medicines
Optimisation Guideline for the management of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary
Disease (COPD) outlines treatment options for managing stable COPD. The
guideline is based on the recommendations in NICE Guidance NG115 and has been
developed by a
multi-disciplinary group comprising primary care and secondary care
pharmacists, respiratory nurse specialists, nurse consultants, GPs and
respiratory consultants working across SW London.
The guideline aims
to support clinicians deliver enhanced patient care, by offering treatments to
reduce symptoms and improve quality of life in patients with COPD.
